WINO WEDNESDAYS - FREE TO THE PUBLIC



THIS WEEK:

Join Jenn Pomrenke from Vino Wholesale to explore Languedoc with 3 wines from...

Chateau Camplazens

Camplazens is located at the site of a Roman Settlement on the top of the Limestone Mountain known as La Clape. Environmentally protected since 1965, the only permitted activity is cultivating vines and making wine. La Clape was an island at the time of the Roman Invasion of Gaul in 118 BC and Chateau Camplazens is one of the few vineyards located on the top of the mountain with the vines at an altitude of 150 meters and 2 km from the Mediterranean Sea.

Viognier

A premium white wine of great character and charm produced from a blend of 100% viognier grapes from both young and 60 year old mature vines.

Straw yellow in the glass with green and golden reflections, this powerful white wine possesses a rich and elegant bouquet of apricots, pineapple and violets.

The sensations on the mouth reveal a full, rounded body with a firm fruity structure which is both mellow and elegant while simultaneously exhibiting surprising freshness, persistency and depth. A superb light dry dessert wine.

Campalzens Marselan

Marselan comes from vines planted in 2003 on a south-facing land on the scrubland which has an ideal soil composition, well drained and overlooking the Mediterranean. This rare grape variety, a hybrid of Cabernet Sauvignon and Grenache, excels in this place and the wine produced has an extraordinary depth of color and huge amounts of soft tannins.

Deep, dense purple color with aromas of spicy, smoky wood fire. Extremely concentrated, with soft tannins blend with roasted pepper aromas to produce a rich silky black fruit in the mouth. 

Camplazens La Garrigue

 

La Garrigue is named from the earthy, heady, heavily perfumed aromatic landscape which surrounds the vines.

A medium bodied, dark, ruby red blend of Syrah and Grenache exhibiting intriguing fruit flavors of soft ripe plums and complex mineral notes which transition to a long, dense, bittersweet chocolate finish. Seductively Mediterranean.
